2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)As the two highest unsigned college draftees from 2015, it's certainly not looking good for the Kentucky Kyles (Funkhouser, Cody) to better their previous draft position. While it's still early, where do you see them coming off the board if this pace continues?
(Burke Granger from Columbus, OH)
What's up dude? Pondering your first question.

You're right, it isn't looking great for the Kyles. Funkhouser's stuff has taken a step in the wrong direction--a continuation of the same guy who limped into the Draft last year, too--and Cody has been Cody. Damn Kyle Cody...

However, if we presume these guys are who they've shown to be THIS year only, I would go with Kyle Cody over Kyle Funkhouser for reasons of physical size and raw tools alone. Though both are pushing through some grueling outings at times, I feel it's easier to make the argument in the Draft room for the bigger, more physical, harder-throwing dude. You can maybe make the argument that because of the Wisconsin upbringing (love of cheese aside, I'm more talking about the cold-weather state factor) and physical size, Cody has more room to grow with pro coaching than Funkhouser does. I do continue to like how easy Cody is out in front of his delivery, but I remember thinking the back-leg alterations to his drive (got shorter, drove longer, lost angle) that Henderson and co. implemented made him worse. I wonder if that could be taken out--and if it would have any impact. Using the 'oh, we'll help him with pro coaching' argument is a double-edged sword. Sometimes it's right, sometimes it fools you into taking a tools guy who can't really play.

I kind of went head-to-head between Cody and Funkhouser--which I realize wasn't exactly your question--because my answer is: I have no idea where these guys are going to go. There's so much going on with both of them insofar as their fallen-from-grace ex-prospect status, very rough JR/SR campaigns on the whole, and senior-moneysaver tags that I expect massive variance team-to-team in terms of where they are on everyone's board. (Adam McInturff)
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Kyle Funkhouser? Would you think he would be a pick in the top half of round one next year? Do you see a SP there?
(Festivus313 from Chris Crawford)
I don't know if I love your location. He's a really frustrating prospect, at times he's 65 fastball, 60 slider, 50-plus change. At times, he's nowhere close to that and doesn't know where the ball is going. IF he shows the former version on a consistent basis he definitely goes in the top half of the first round. I have very little faith in that happening. I hope I'm wrong. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tough to know at 22, but any late word on who the Tigers may be targeting?
(Chris from Detroit)
I've heard mostly college guys, but I heard mostly college guys when they took Derek Hill, so that doesn't mean a lot. Jon Harris, Kyle Funkhouser, and any college arm that slips makes sense here. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-04-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any draft-eligible players that you like right now?
(Boo Radley from Alabama)
Kyle Funkhouser from Louisville. I'm an Illini guy, so I'm curious as to what Tyler Jay can be. Aiken being hurt makes the Cubs at 9 very interesting... Brendan Rodgers seems to be the consensus one at the moment. These things changes so quickly, though, so I'll just keep looking on from afar and watching how it all goes down. (Sahadev Sharma)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)In KY it sounds like RHP Kyle Funkhouser and RHP Kyle Cody are battling as two of the top power righties in this years draft. Do they both go in the top 10?
(Cliff from Louisville, KY)
Seen both a couple times. Cody is a beast. Just a big boy who throws mid 90's bowling balls. CH (82-84) ahead of the breaking ball (80-81), which can slurve out. I have some questions about Cody's pitchability and FB command, but hell... this will work. And he's a very safe pick so he'll keep rising even if we don't hear about it. I don't see him as a top 5 pick, but I think he's a top half of the first round guy.

Funkhouser I did not see last summer because he was with Team USA. Saw him a few times in 2013 and while I thought he was a big arm with nasty stuff I worried about his delivery and command. From what I've seen and what I've been told he's really smoothed himself out and added strength has made it all work better. I wouldn't have given him a top 10 pick grade last year, but I think it's very possible I'd give him one if I saw him this Spring. What hurts them both is that college arms are a strength of this year's first round. In another year they might have risen up more, but their value is depressed a bit. (Al Skorupa)
